How armoured vehicles can change the course of history in RTD’s Russian tank documentaries

RTD’s Russian tank documentaries chart the history and use of armoured vehicles from their introduction a hundred years ago until today. We meet the people who are restoring and preserving classic fighting vehicles from World War II to honour the crews who fought and died in them. More recently, the tank has been used as a tool of power, to both suppress and encourage people. Modern tanks are some of the most technologically-advanced and sophisticated weapons available and are a far cry from the original vehicles of a century ago.
